    Wilco are leaving their long-time label Nonesuch Records to start their own record company, dBpm Records. The band's longtime manager, Tony Margherita, will run the enterprise from his offices in Easthampton, Massachusetts. dBpm's releases will be distributed and marketed through the independent label Anti- Records, which is a part of the Epitaph label.

    "This is an idea we've discussed for years," Tweedy said in a statement. "We really like doing things ourselves, so having our own label feels pretty natural to me. And, to be working with Anti- -- a label that was started by a punk rock guy to sell his own records -- seems like a perfect fit for us." Tweedy is speaking about Bad Religion's Brett Gurewitz, who founded Epitaph.

    Congrats to Tweedy and Wilco on their latest venture.
